Dental Implant

Dental implants are root-like cylinders of titanium which are imbedded in the jawbone to replace missing teeth. With dental implants, there is no need to grind down healthy adjacent teeth for support as is necessary when constructing traditional dental bridges. A dental implant can usually be placed in a single appointment, taking less than an hour. There is very little post-placement discomfort. After a period of healing, a crown can then be placed over the implant. Since the first implants were placed, great advancements have been made in their design and application. In the last ten years, research has shown that implants have a ninety percent long-term success rate for, unlike natural teeth, they are immune from the destructive effects of cavities or gum disease.
